For a single speed commuter, you're better off with a Surly Steamroller.
Iím confused. Forgive me if Iím wrong but isnít the Tut also based on track geometry? As I said, Iím not an expert in bike geometry but the numbers seem quite close, the Tut even seems more compact on the contrary to what you said - 536mm top tube (size 530) on the Rush and 530mm (size M) on the Tut. What measurements are you referring to when you state ďwacky long top tubeĒ? I guess I'm not seeing what you're seeing.
